My husband, my best friend and I shared a room with two beds on the night of June 24, 2014. The gentleman who checked us in (I regret that I do not recall his name) was the epitome of excellent service. He told us that we had been upgraded at no cost to a bigger room and then took the time to make appropriate and appreciated suggestions for dinner and other entertainment. A bowl of fresh fruit on the desk was a nice touch.
The room itself was spacious and clean, but certainly nothing fancy. The hotel may have been an apartment building once; a strange pantry-like room off the kitchen suggested that. Our only issue was that the room had an odd odour which reminded me of the cheap motels that I have stayed in when travelling on a budget. The beds were comfortable.
Although the room was average, the location of the hotel is excellent. The hotel is in Hillcrest; Hillcrest hosts a large number of gay-friendly restaurants and bars. We felt very comfortable in the neighbourhood, even walking late at night.
The hotel is also (or was for us) an easy walk to Balboa Park; it would be an even easier drive. Balboa Park features beautiful gardens, museums, galleries and the San Diego Zoo. The day that we checked out, the hotel was kind enough to allow us to keep our car in the garage until 5 pm.
We would definitely stay again.
